One of our most buzzed about models of the year, Arizona Muse, has booked her first major ad campaign, and it’s a big one. The “model-to-watch” is the face of Yves Saint Laurent‘s spring 2011 ad campaign, WWD is reporting.
Muse was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in the gardens of Bled Roknine, a ’30s style villa in Marrakech. YSL’s connection to Morocco is well known: the designer bought the Majorelle botanical gardens in Marrackech in 1980 with his partner Pierre Barge. The gardens served as a source of inspiration to Saint Laurent, and his ashes were scattered there when he died in 2008. An exhibition of Saint Laurent’s Morrocan-inspired looks are currently on display there.
